the rain is just slightly falling. but the biggest thing yesterday, here in rehoboth beach, in dewey beach, where we are at right now, we saw the brunt nft storm really in the morning. and even when the eye wall came over us, we still had a little bit of rain, still had a little bit of wind, but even at high tide last night, we didn't see the type of waves and the type of erosion that we were seeing yesterday morning. it was just tremendous. so now that we're seeing the after effects, or the effects rather, what we're seeing is flooding. we got a lot of rain, didn't get too much wind. so we're thankful that we're not seeing shattered glass all over the place. but this is what you're finding, where the ocean and the bay meet, and you're seeing roadways in low lying areas just inundated, covered with water. there is still a driving ban that is in place for the state of delaware. residents here are not expected to be back to work until after 4:30. even then it's still questionable. we'll get an update from the governor of delaware. still the impact here is going to be in low lying areas

people flock to during the summertime, is rehoboth beach. kelley wright is standing by where the waves are crashing as you can see. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: well, gregg, the reason we came out here because we thought it was a little safer to come out now. we didn't want to take any chances. but you can see that the waves are still crashing. they are not as violent as they were when they were hitting swells of 6 to 10-foot waves coming in, doing a lot of damage to the surf and the sand. this is an example of some of that damage. this fencing that you see here is actually fencing to actually go around the dunes to protect the dunes. the dunes that they built here along rehoboth are for one purpose, that is to protect beach erosion and to maintain the -- the safety of the beach area. and john is showing you some examples of that. but look how twisted this is. this is from wind and wave damage. to give you a good idea of how strong this storm was, as it pounded this rehoboth beach. the good thing is that many people had been evacuated and looking down this way, t
